I have no idea where to start with this... I have no experience coding with perl, so maybe if someone could show me to a guide about how to go about doing this and push me in the right direction
I have a website where users can uploaded recorded games for Age of Mythology. I want to make it so that when a user uploads a recorded game, a script will extract some of the data from the file (including map type, player's names, etc).
Here is an example file: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/786530/LittleBraver_vs_Vip_Victory.rec
Many websites already do this, so I know it's possible but I have no idea how to start.
